          Comments about ULTA Salon Formula Nail Lacquer:

          I find ULTA nail polish to be a great value. The coverage and pigment is solid. One coat looks good, 2 coats is perfect. I've found some other brands to be so watery and thin that it can take 4-5 layers just to get a solid coat! *Cough*china glaze* cough. The gold shimmer looks great and is a new favorite shade. I like my ULTA polishes as much as I like OPI and find them to be of similar quality.

                      I am not great at painting my own nails and I live in a very humid area, so I have found that the polish does rub off easily. I am sad about this too.

                            Though this product is not formulated with gluten, it is not "certified" gluten-free with specific testing and is not made in a dedicated gluten-free facility, so we cannot guarantee against cross-contamination.

                            ULTA Salon Formula Nail Lacquer is both 3-free and 5-free. It does not contain Dibutyl, Formaldehyde, Toluene, Formaldehyde Resin, or Camphor. Although we do not set age requirements for our products, we would suggest reviewing the ingredients with your child's physician if you have any medical concerns.
